President Donald Trump discussed trade, tax reform and immigration with some of the nation's top CEOs on Friday in the first meeting of his business council at the White House.
Blackstone CEO Steve Schwarzman, who chairs the council, told CNBC he saw "complete engagement from everybody in the room."
"We talked about tax, we talked about trade, we talked about infrastructure, we talked about women's issues ... we talked about jobs in terms of training people in technology," he said.
McMillon said that Friday's meeting was an "important opportunity to discuss the economy and job creation."
"I look forward to continued discussions with the administration, consistent with our longstanding belief that it's always better to be engaged in trying to shape solutions than sitting on the sidelines," McMillon said in a statement after the meeting.
The panel, which advises Trump on economic policy, convened without Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, who stepped down from the group Thursday amid customer pressure over the company's reaction to Trump's executive order temporarily barring travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.
Before the meeting, Trump told reporters he would address the Dodd-Frank financial reform act and the banking industry with the group.
